Congrats to mduncanhogs and St Marys TX on his/their 4th Yarnell title. He ties bvb24 for most Yarnell titles won.
I think this was a very good field and interested in how these 5th set of games are decided even though the title is secure. Harding was up 14 with 7:40 left on the road and almost choked. Sunk 2 FTs with seconds left to win. I think both Longwood and Harding will be better at season's end as they both have young guys playing key roles. The other 4 teams in this field are very, very good and will only get better. I love burk's backcourt, that McGhaney kid from Indy, and mduncan's 1-2 inside-outside punch of Murphy and Barrows. Hillsdale can beat you with a variety of players.
Fun tournament this year. I'd just like to win a game or two more. Maybe we can take down the champ tonight with them knowing they have it sewn up. ;) If I remember correctly, I did that on more than one occasion.
